This island is higher and more rugged than its neighbour, Inishvickillane. Tomás Ó Criomhthain records in An t-Oileánach (The Islandman) how the well-known melody Port na bPúcaí magically came to one of the Daly family living on Inishnabro. This story in turn inspired Seamus Heaney's poem The Given Note. The island may well get its name from the remarkable rock arches near Cathedral Rocks / An Charraig Scoilte at the northern tip. The word bró or breo is used in several place-names to denote a remarkable fracture of the rocks or simply a cut or notch between hills, cf. Broemountain, Brow Head, Knocknabro.   Inis na Bró is the 1428th highest place in Ireland. Inis na Bró is the second most southerly summit in the Dingle West area. It's also the third most westerly summit in Ireland.

A view along the island
by wicklore  9 Sep 2012
The upper reaches of Inis na Bro are covered in deep bell heather. When added to the spongy grasses and mosses elsewhere, it meant that the 175 metre ascent from sea level required more of an effort than a comparable ascent elsewhere. This photo shows the group leaving the summit to return to the boat, with the south of the island stretching before us and Inishvickillane beyond.
